Fun and Friends

Hi Guys!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I sure did!  It was full of fun and friends! The temperature was still so hot, but we spent all day Saturday outside.  Jeremy was umpiring a baseball tournament this weekend so I spent some time at the games.  Let’s start with Friday night.  more “Fun and Friends”

Rest, Rest, & Repeat

Hi Guys!  As you can tell from my title, I’ve been doing a lot of resting this week!  That included a short break from blogging too.  I have several reasons why I decided to make it a light week. I am starting half marathon training on Monday (YAY!!) so I wanted to be all rested up! Plus, my shin has been acting up a little bit and I wanted to give it time to calm down.  It’s my fault because I have not been wearing my compression sleeves and I think I wore my old shoes for too long. And, all I ever wear is flip flops.  But, I’ve been massaging and icing it all week and it’s feeling better!  I’m excited about training, but nervous to see how it goes.   more “Rest, Rest, & Repeat”

The Worst Run Week Ever

Hi Guys!  This week has been a weird one.  During the day it felt like it was dragging, but now that it’s over it feels like it flew!  This week was a very busy work week, and that really impacted my running/working out.  I had to leave my house by 7 every morning so that meant no morning runs, and by the time I got home in the evening I was so worn out that I had absolutely no motivation or energy.  I’ll say overall, it wasn’t a very good running week.  All of my runs felt forced and it was rough.   But, I still tried to at least do some sort of exercise activity every day.  I just didn’t push it too hard.  Maybe it’s not the worst week ever because I at least got to run.  (It would be worse if I couldn’t run.)  But, it still wasn’t a very a good one.   more “The Worst Run Week Ever”

Do you need someone to walk your dogs?  I guess I’m available.  You might as well call me the dog whisperer.  Or better yet, I’m going to add professional dog walker to my resume.  I’m linking up for this week’s Thinking Out Loud to discuss my new unexpected profession. more “New Job Title”

A Solid Week of Workouts

Hi Friends!  Welcome to this week’s recap!  I had a really busy week of work, but I also had a solid week of workouts and runs.  And, the weekend brought some cooler temperatures so it was actually tolerable to be outside!  A busy week called for a relaxing weekend and that’s just what we did.  I included my weekend recap in this one since we relaxed all weekend.  Let’s go back to Monday.  more “A Solid Week of Workouts”

The Only Oil You Will Ever Need

Hi Friends!  Today I have a new product to share with you.   Who out there loves coconut oil?  I know I do!  I love coconut oil because there are so many ways you can use it.  So when Skinny & Company asked me to try their products, I was all about it!  It was perfect timing too as I had just used the last of my “regular” coconut oil.  There is nothing regular about Skinny & Co!  They have so much more to offer than just regular coconut oil.  They also have lots of coconut oil beauty products too!  And I have a discount code just for my readers!  I can’t wait to share all of this with you.  more “The Only Oil You Will Ever Need”
